Queen of Hearts Fundraise to Benefit First Step Victim Services

WATKINS GLEN | The Annual Queen of Hearts Fundraiser, presented by The Slaydies Den and Seneca Sunrise Coffee, will take place Saturday, February 22, 2020, at 6pm at the Community Center in Watkins Glen. Proceeds from this ladies-only event will go to First Step Victim Services, the domestic violence program of Catholic Charities of Chemung/Schuyler.

Heavy appetizers and a cash bar will be available at the event, along with music and a photo booth from Finger Lakes Entertainment Group. A silent auction will take place during the evening as well. Tickets can be purchased online at www.theslaydiesden.com and will only be on sale until December 31, 2019 or until they sell out.

Supervisor of First Step Victim Services, Kristine Morseman, is elated by the upcoming event saying, “I’m excited and honored that The Slaydies Den has chosen First Step Victim Services to benefit from their annual fundraiser this year. Matching funds are critical to funding. We will be using the funds raised to directly assist clients who are leaving abusive relationships and starting their lives over.”

This is the third annual fundraiser hosted by The Slaydies Den. Last year this event raised $2,500 for First Step Victim Services. The money was used to purchase Uber gift cards, gas cards, temporary phones and more.

The Slaydies Den, is a Women’s Empowerment Center which focuses on Gratitude, Self-Care and Giving Back to the community. The Slaydies Den offers a non-judgmental space for women to connect virtually as well as network via an array of in person meetups.

The Slaydies Den is actively seeking sponsorship for this event. With the proceeds going directly to the organization, we are asking that the community rally around this event and show support. For more details about the availability of sponsoring, please email info@jerakahheady.com.
